Charlie Reed is a brand new project from Luke Trimble, the lead
songwriter, singer, and guitarist of the Uh Bones, arguably one of the
best bands to hit the Chicago rock n roll scene in recent memory. As Uh
Bones was ending, Luke turned to his bedroom to experiment with a newly
acquired reel-to-reel 8-track recorder, soon finding himself obsessed,
using of his free time to write and record new songs as they came to
him. As he did in Uh Bones, Luke continues to show his prowess at
songwriting in Charlie Reed, writing songs that are interesting and
different, with strange chord changes and song structures, but always
catchy and memorable. But the bedroom has changed Luke’s approach – he
has turned down his amps, brought in a nylon-stringed acoustic, and
slowed down the tempo. And so, whereas Uh Bones was a psych rock band,
Charlie Reed is arguably more psych folk, but without any reverb, and
without any of the hippy-dippy bullshit associated with the genre.
Still, the songs have the feel of a vaguely lysergic waking dream, in
and out of which the listener slowly floats, just as the faded remnants
of the recordings left on the ¼” tape over which Luke recorded his songs
fade in and out of at the beginning and end of each song. And while
the songs give an impression of loneliness, it is mostly without
sadness, a languid acceptance of longing as an inevitable that gives the
songs a somber beauty that is all their own. Since these recording
these songs, Luke has recruited a band to move these songs out of the
bedroom and into the public eye, but until they come to your town, take
home this 7” and experience it for yourself. And keep your eyes and
ears open for more great music coming down the pipeline from Charlie
